SUNCAT will be upgraded in the middle of next week with a release including a number of new features and fixes to some existing bugs.
The most significant new addition will enable you to browse as well as search SUNCAT. You can access the browse options by clicking on the link underneath the search boxes on the homepage or from the navigation menu on the left hand side of the other pages.
There are a range of indexes available for browsing including:
- Exact Title
- Subject Headings
Entering a term and browsing on any of the indexes will take you to the nearest point on that index and enable you to browse alphabetically forwards and backwards.
Other new features comprise:
- Improvements to how the Institution and Format filters interact on the search results page. You will be able to filter your results to a particular institution AND you can then filter further to see just electronic or print items at that institution.
- Improvements to the responsive design so that SUNCAT should now work better on your tablet or mobile.
- Plus a range of fixes which will help the service run more smoothly and intuitively.
We hope you find the new functionality helpful and easy to use, please let us have any feedback via the “Contact” link at the foot of all the SUNCAT pages or via the EDINA helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
